Short Description

Andalusia „en su salsa“: sparkling and exciting with many cultural highlights. Selected destinations are Ronda, the "dreamed city" with its hanging gardens and Granada with its matchless Nasrid residence, the Alhambra (a UNESCO world heritage site), as well as Albaicín, the Arabic quarter. In between we'll  hike on the legendary „Caminito del Rey“  and through the karst landscape of the Sierra de Grazalema and its remote mountains. We'll taste the region's wine and drift from bar to bar to sample typical tapas. Our arrival and departure point is Málaga, fun-loving provincial capital and birthplace of Picasso. 

 

Eventful hikes alongside cultural experiences: We'll discover a fascinating mountainscape on the south side of the Sierra Nevada and white-washed villages dating back to Moorish times. We'll be very close to Mulhacén, the highest mountain on the Iberian peninsula (3482m), cross deep ravines and let ourselves be beguiled by the scent of lemon and orange groves. 

 

Cabo del Gata National Park, one of the most significant volcanic mountain ranges with semi-deserts and almost pristine coastal landscapes, is nearly mythological in Spain and stands in complete contrast to the Sierra Nevada. Deserted coves and coastal paths along the Mediterranean soothe the soul and in this  relaxing way we'll end our "Andalusian Symphony".
